So I love Edgar Payne's work a LOT. And I have heard nothing but amazing things about his book Composition of Outdoor Painting. The thing is, I usually order books from amazon.ca but they only have used copies and it runs $100+. Not gonna drop that much cash on a single book at the moment.
I have come across a couple other sites that sell it, but it always is about $50 (not even including the shipping to Canada, which I imagine is kinda pricey)...which seems ludicrously expensive for a tiny book that doesn't even have half of it's images in colour. The sites I've come across are the following:
Anyone know of any other way I might get it cheaper? Is this book really worth the amount it would cost me?
Also, I was wondering if anyone has his Scenic Journey book, or some of the ones available from the two sites I linked regarding American/Californian Impressionists. If so, what do you think of them? There are a lot of books there that look like they potentially have some brilliant art, but I am hesitant to blindly spend money on them.
